It's Pearl Harbor day.

Eighty years ago today naval and air forces of Imperial Japan struck America's Pacific Fleet and sank several battleships, but in a weird "coincidence" that has been pondered ever since, none of the USA's fleet aircraft carriers were in port during the attack, and survived to go on and sink many of Japan's fleet carriers - some of them having been involved in the Pearl Harbor attack - six months later at the Battle of Midway, effectively breaking the Imperial Japanese Navy's offensive power.  That odd coincidence has led many ever since to conclude that the American carriers' absence from Pearl Harbor was not an accident, and that President Franklin Roosevelt, or at least some of his closest advisors, knew of the attack ahead of time and contrived to allow the attack to happen, keeping the precious carriers out of port that day.

The reader may number me among those who think that Pearl Harbor was a classic LIHOP - Let It Happen On Purpose - operation.

Which brings us to the USA's recent Afghanistan debacle, where several American citizens were left stranded in that blighted country, along with billions of dollars of military equipment. At the time, no one could make sense of it, except now, there's an article over at Zero Hedge which was spotted by E.G., and which appears to be asking the right questions:

Fierce Taliban vs. Iran Clashes Break Out On Afghan Border

Note the following statements:

The Afghan side is claiming that Iranian border patrols crossed into Afghan territory, resulting in an armed confrontation and firefight. "Amaj News based in Kabul also quoted local sources as saying that Iranian forces used heavy weapons and the Taliban dispatched armored American Humvees to confront Iran’s border troops," regional news source Iran International observed.

In addition to the American Humvees, ironically enough, it's also likely that US weapons and ammunition were used by the Taliban militants, given the hardline Islamist group had last August captured many millions of dollars worth of US equipment as the Pentagon rapidly withdrew from the country.


The Taliban advance so near the border had placed Iran's border forces on high alert, which included deployments of elite IRGC units in some places. At the time the IRGC said it would crackdown on any possible drug smuggling or any unauthorized breaches of Iran's border.

So there you have it: (1) Taliban forces used some of that left-behind American military equipment, including ammunition, to fight Iranians. That in turn implies that some of the weapons the Taliban was using was possibly if not probably the left-behind weapons, and (2) Iran's response was because of a fear of possible drug smuggling into that country.

The question posed is a rather obvious one: was an inevitable Taliban-Iranian clash the ultimate reason that the American withdrawal was so badly handled by the Brandonenko misadministration? Answer: we don't know.  However, given the history of the US government indulging LIHOP operations, it wouldn't be surprising. After all, some would argue that what got America into Afghanistan in the first place was a LIHOP operation - 9/11 - just like what got America into World War Two may have been a LIHOP operation: Pearl Harbor.

How to test this hypothesis and high octane speculation? Simple: if this recent border clash was not a one-off, but continues into the future with increasing tensions and further similar events, then it becomes a much more plausible speculation.

See you on the flip side...

    That ‘LIHOP’ view of happenstance remains an opportunistic way for some to redirect focus (on lots of difficult concerns merging together). Pearl Harbor, for instance, was very significant in that it meant the US achieving purpose on what to do about the rest of the major powers edging towards conflict. But the US also had some unusual events within its borders. Missouri. Cape Girardeau, April, 1941, crash retrieval of an unusual something with bodies. That event spelled dollar$ for the intelligence and military services in no uncertain way.

    Tehran and Kabul also presented some unusual opportunities to redirect focus. The fuel cost for removing hardware tonnage would have been very expensive for the taxpayer but engaging in additional conflicts in the region might have been far worse in dollar cost and personnel. Less likely now.

    The Party of the east by going west may have wanted to entice the US into several simultaneous kinetic conflicts but that is no longer working in their favor – and only becoming less so – as the Party master has increasing uncertainty mounting geometrically back at him and Party members. A geometric progression often starts out slowly with a trickle but soon is greater than a Tsunami.

    Eastern Europe is another consideration these days with notable posturing. Not one to add a flashpoint to your ‘high octane speculations’ but those mentioned so far are only a few of about twenty or so global hot spots with current ebbs and flows on the geopolitical stages some news agencies refuse to cover.

    Informed speculation does have a way of getting its foot into the doorway of a broader stadium for that next step forward and front row seating.

    • InfiniteRUs on December 7, 2021 at 11:53 pm

      Climate change rest and Covid reset is failed so get ready for Globalist plan C; catastrophic war. Taliban needed lots of weaponry no doubt to do their part for their region in the coming global war.

  6. Nidster - on December 7, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Forget the speculation offered in other posts, the good doctor has it correct, here are more details:

    U.S. Col. Billy Mitchell, a decorated WWI veteran airman, was accused by his superiors of ineptitude, and was court-martial-ed. Importantly, during his trial Mitchell foretold EXACTLY and in detail how the Japanese forces would attack Pearl Harbor. Thankfully, a few military commanders gave his inspiration credence, and that is the reason why the attack was known ahead of time. Yes, it was also a contrived, classic “LIHOP – Let It Happen On Purpose – operation”, and the precious American carrier ships were purposely sent ‘out of port’. Here is a suggested place to see the film, and while not the best movie ever made it will ‘hit home’ that something was in play.

  7. marcos toledo on December 7, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    Is this the real Taliban or are they an MI-5 CIA pseudo front group masquerading as the Taliban? This beginning to look like a revival of or continuation of the Great Game of the 19th century with heroin replacing opium as the drug being used as collateral to finance the war thou heroin is derived from opium.

    • marcos toledo on December 7, 2021 at 8:12 pm

      By the way the attack on Pearl Harbor has always been strange to me in that why were the machine shops and aviation fuel tanks were not attacked and destroyed. If I had planned that attack those two targets would have been at the top of my list the battleships would have been third or fourth.

      • Scott S on December 8, 2021 at 2:52 pm

        Everything is logical. It’s just a matter of finding the right perspective. The goal was to have a big war, so both sides need lots of gas and parts. It’s the same reason Standard Oil provided Germany with tetraethyl lead through out WWII. Read Antony Sutton. War is always a carefully managed affair.

      There’s a reason for the Brits wearing a red poppy – all this time.

      If we had a means to copy pictures into these comments, I’d have posted during Milley’s flight the before and after pictures of Taliban. Both are posed group photos of traditional garb standing facing camera with their AK47’s. Old picture shows them all holding weapons with fingers on triggers and covering each other as often as not. New pictures ALL show them with perfect weapon discipline. All index fingers straight tight to stock. I noticed it but didn’t quite put my finger on it. Then someone did side by side contrast and captioned:

      Taliban before CIA training. Taliban after CIA training. Curious that Tim Osman never disciplined his troops after all those years at Langley learning to fire stingers.

  8. zendogbreath on December 7, 2021 at 4:01 pm

    Nice catch Doc.
    Adm Kimmel’s family needs to read here.

    Another door opened by all those horrific videos out of AFG during and after US bailed (oddly enough not censored) is the likelihood of resupply of Taliban as they do what their Langley handlers like. After all, how would anyone know if their weapons came from US before or after Milley’s flight?

    By the way, for what it’s worth, this is either an indicator of sea change or I’m just too hopeful.

    • zendogbreath on December 7, 2021 at 7:32 pm

      Has anyone seen this take on Trump’s latest escapades? Torba’s perspective is interesting.

      Kinda looks like Trump Media and Rumble merging and sucking up hedge fund dollars.

      • Nidster - on December 7, 2021 at 11:29 pm

        Hey Zen!! You got me to thinking about stuff, AFTER reading about Trump’s latest escapades earlier today, and reading your post, so thank-you!!!

        While the good folks at GAB are going about doing the Lords’ Work by shunning the so-called ‘Grifters’ and keeping them ‘at bay’, will they not also leave out little folks such as the Aboriginal Australian folks, as GAB builds a Christian economy? Will they defend online free speech for all people at all costs? What a vision, or could it be a NIGHTMARE!!!

        What about all the First American tribal folk in the New World we refer to as America? The Eskimo might be on their exclusionary list too, because no one needs to hear from them, right? What about Russia? Few of us understand the entire ethnic complexity of the Russian Federation. From the Asian hinterlands into Siberia are found about 30 or more aboriginal peoples, most of whom live in Siberia, and maintain their cultural traditions despite over a half-century of heavy pressures to assimilate into the former Soviet state. But, once a person realizes the mistake the Soviets made by sending their foremost scientists to the Gulags in Siberia another story will emerge.

        Then consider the American US Congress, DOJ, CIA, FBI and other 3-letter agencies who certainly went after a guy, and his family with a vengeance that went far beyond all reasonable understanding. You certainly are not a supporter of those folks? Right? So, who among us supports those 3-letter agencies? Why not Trump? Why not allow another, alternative ‘voice’ to emerge? The ‘more the merrier’, as the saying goes.

        Oh, wait!!! I get it know, they gotta keep after Trump, the former ‘Grifter-in-Chief’, and his supporters by not allowing him to succeed because we need a Christian Economy, as opposed to Some-Other Economy. Very telling information. Believe me I have firsthand knowledge on the Christian’s religion, as some refer to it. And the Bankster’s religion, too!! We do need a better economy. One that respects all Peoples, and it may not be the Trump Economy either… Jus’ saying

        • zendogbreath on December 8, 2021 at 12:13 am

          Good points. The only issue I can take is the talk of allowing Trump to do this that or anything. If I had a religion, Zappa and Carlin would be at the top of it. My perspective is trying to see ahead what the zeitgeist jammers have in mind for our bumpy ride. So far it looks like Trump or a Trumper will save us (or some of us) from horrific plandemic and critical anything theorists just in time to be heroes to quite a few of us. Ex: Dr Oz. All any of the worst schmucks gotta do is pledge to not be as vaxxist as the previous regime and they get a huge and rising majority of votes.

          Where I think Gab is right about grifters comes up watching Clay Clark building his Christian network gathering all who advocate saner policies into a group that incidentally sold Q hard (and likely will again). Doc’s had a few posts referencing Q here. Bernard Grover’s done a fair bit of work tracking that phenomenon.

          A distinct possibility I have yet to see good evidence to the contrary is

          ‘Q-Anon’ Bears Striking Resemblance to Bolshevik Psy-Op From 1920s Known As ‘Operation Trust’

          Food for thought. As I see Flynn and Wood dig back and forth selling and mocking Q, it’s hard to tell where that narrative is headed and who its targets are.

          • Loxie Lou Davie on December 10, 2021 at 7:41 am

            One might check out Martin Geddes’ work…..he must be saying something that is scaring the DS. They keep squashing him & he has to keep moving around!!

        • zendogbreath on December 8, 2021 at 12:24 am

          Rereading that Nidster, it came to mind:
          I doubt Torba will exclude any group for any reason at pain of having some seriously abusive points of view on display. He usually cuts folk off for quick enough for stuff that is illegal. Thankfully it’s still not illegal to post ideas I strongly object to. If not for being racist and/or prejudicial about any group, then for saying horrific things that get liberty minded folk painted as racists, fascists, nazis,………. whateverists.

          Even though Torba probably won’t exclude anyone, many people won’t get on GAB so it will become another echo chamber. Ironically even as good folk get progressively more censored off Twitter, (and it’s only a matter of time for the rest of us) the only reason I like Twitter is the arguments with folk of different beliefs. Granted there are those who go straight to ad hominem along with brigades of bots (77th and otherwise) but just the same, there are many intelligent folk who are determined to argue out logic.

          These folk give just the opposite of an echo chamber. As often as I’ve had to tell someone, thank you for the link that changed my point of view, I’ve gotten that back from people.

          That experience is the only reason I got online. It’s why I read what I can of Doc and you all. To me it’s as addictive and food. Perhaps more useful too. Have a good night and thank you.

          • Nidster - on December 8, 2021 at 1:38 am

        • Zorost on December 8, 2021 at 12:22 pm

          I’m not sure what you are saying about Gab? Are you saying Torba is booting people off of Gab for not being Christian? He hasn’t been, and has stated the only people he’ll boot are people that break the law by advocating violence, threatening people, or doxing them.

          There are nazi pagans who write long diatribes against Christianity on a regular basis, and nothing is done against them. There are plenty of long, boring debates between them and Christians that I somehow get tagged into. I just did a search for ‘pagan’ on Gab and 25 different groups came up.

      • InfiniteRUs on December 8, 2021 at 12:02 am

        All part of cementing the divide they created. They are creating a limited hang out Christian Trump gheto. No more cross political divide communications where we all have a chance to come together. Now the left will only get to hear leftist propaganda and the right will only hear rightist propaganda.

        • zendogbreath on December 8, 2021 at 12:33 am

          Think you said it better than I did. Thank you.

          I noticed it last night while everyone was looking at the Reclaim America parade in DC. Most on Twitter saw through and brought mounting evidence astroturfing – probably Lincoln Project false flaggers like the knuckleheads with the tiki torches.

          At the same time, I saw many folk on GAB arguing that the masked, kaki pants conservatives could not have been feds posing as extremists because well they just were good guys.

          One of my favorite critiques came from Vinny Thomas on Twitter:

          Funny sometimes going back and forth between various blogs, I feel like the guy in the bar talking between people:
          Hey did you hear what that guy at the other end of the bar said?…………..

    Plus the oil was cut off from Japan; basically forcing their hand in war.
    FDR knew, as did the top brass military.
    The planned Pearl Harbor attack worked as designed.
    However; in my reading of Dr. Farrell’s book on 9/11, plans did not go by design. [Unless, of course, your talking about the Nazi International/IMO].

    No doubt those USSA purposed left-behind weapons; will require parts, which will find their purpose, also fulfilled by design. Ironically one of the few supply chains actually working; w/in all those broken-down chains worldwide.

    Time will tell.
    The mainstream press, certainly won’t.

    • zendogbreath on December 7, 2021 at 11:17 pm

      Remember Casey and Bush supplying aircraft parts to Iran via Israel in Iran Contra?

      When they have a will they make a way.

      Yep. US cut Japan off hard. Previously mentioned memos included conversations on how to get Japan to strike first. Ships were stuffed into bottlenecked harbor. Kimmel and the Army general in charge were scapegoated in spite of their repeated requests to change orders on preparedness.

      Its difficult to imagine that Sept 11 did not go according to plan. Read SK Bain’s book and try to hang on to the idea that the event of that day did not go as planned. The issue is that the people who thought they were at the top (Bush, Rummy, Cheney, etc.) were reminded of their true status and expendability.

  10. Sophia on December 7, 2021 at 9:16 am


    “ The Taliban, which swept to power in Afghanistan in August by overthrowing the US-backed government in Kabul, has shared warm ties with Iran in recent years.

    There have been regular meetings between officials since the Taliban announced an interim government but it has not yet been recognised by Tehran.”

    Wonder if the attack was to prevent a border wall impediment to heroine tracking? How do we reconcile this with the Taliban’s traditional anti-heroine vehemence?

    • zendogbreath on December 7, 2021 at 7:36 pm

      Thought Taliban and Mujahadeen were interchangeable and interchanged. Also thought poppy crops were burned before US invasion more as an attack on the market by messing with supply. Who brought those crops in before they were burned in 2001?

  11. Zorost on December 7, 2021 at 8:15 am

    Pearl Harbor was more than just a LIHOP. FDR wanted war with Japan, and he intentionally pushed Japan into war. The McCollum memo proves this.

    The reason we left ‘stan is a deal was reached between China and Biden Inc, one that screwed the MIC and the CIA. The CIA is probably trying to reinstate its heroin ratline, which is likely what this article is about.
